  • Trump's Silence After Recent London Attack On Muslims Speaks Volumes

    In an op ed piece published at CNN online writer Haroon Moghul suggest that U.S. President Donald Trump and his supporters have contributed to the recent attacks on Muslims by at times excusing and encouraging extremist language and rhetoric. Writing about the recent attack in London Moghul expresses in the article his long held fears about the eventual back lash against muslims after years of jihadists in the West. Moghul writes: "I have long feared that years of attacks by jihadists in the West, coupled with a media that at best dismisses Islamophobia and, at worst -- and especially, but not exclusively, on the right -- fans the flames of bigotry, intolerance and anti-Muslim extremism, would lead us to this outcome. Something like tit-for-tat violence."

  • Donald Trump Tweets Angry, Racist Rant At Wrong Megan Rapinoe Account

    A video clip of U.S. Women’s National Team forward Megan Rapinoe saying she would not be “going to the fucking White House,” should the team win the World Cup has gone viral. President Donald Trump responded with a series of social media posts calling out Rapinoe. He also made several astoundingly racist comments about the NBA, specifically about owners not being called owners anymore and “black unemployment.” All par for the course, but the real kicker is that Trump tagged the wrong Twitter handle the first time around. So he just did it all again.
